Coordinated Healthcare Interventions for Childhood Asthma Gaps in Outcomes (CHICAGO) Collaboration II (CHICAGO Collaboration II)
Many evidence-based care strategies have demonstrated the ability to improve asthma control, but uncertainty remains about how best to implement and sustain these strategies in settings where children live, learn, play, and receive medical care. Over the past two decades, partnerships have developed to address the problem of uncontrolled asthma in children. Led by Chicago Asthma Consortium, Respiratory Health Association, University of Illinois at Chicago and Sinai Urban Health Institute, this project aims to engage a diverse group of stakeholders, conduct a community needs assessment, update and finalize an Asthma Care Implementation Program (ACIP) for children across the following sectors: medical care, family, home and community, and finalize the design of a clinical trial to evaluate the four-sector CHICAGO Collaboration II ACIP.
